    In 2006, nearly two years before the 2008 presidential election, I told my friend, then-Senator Barack Obama, that I would support him if he ran for the presidency. I was and am proud that I was one of his first supporters. I made my decision early because I knew something: He was the right person for the job, but getting there would be hard. And I figured that the sooner I started helping, the more helpful I would be. Today I’m announcing my support for Hillary Clinton for the same reason. If she decides to run – and I hope...

    Former Army Gen. David Petraeus , who has traditionally stayed away from political endorsements, appears to be eager to support a Hillary Clinton candidacy, a new book alleges. “She’d make a tremendous President,” the former commander and CIA director reportedly says in the new book “HRC: State Secrets and the Rebirth of Hillary Clinton,” by Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes. “Like a lot of great leaders, her most impressive qualities were most visible during tough times,” Petraeus adds. The comments mark an interesting departure for Petraeus, who, when it comes to politics, has typically remained quiet. The book, to be...

    Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.), who according to a forthcoming book is on Hillary Clinton’s “hit list,” offered his support for the former secretary of State, senator and first lady if she runs for president again in 2016. “I’m a huge supporter of Hillary Clinton. I hope she will run for president, and I’ve indicated I would be a supporter of Hillary Clinton if she runs, but again, I’m trying to figure out this last one,” Van Hollen said on MSNBC. “As I say, it’s an unsolved mystery. Maybe someone will pick up the phone and tell me. Again, this...

    On Monday, the editor of the New York Times Editorial page was compelled to write that the publication has not decided to endorse Hillary Clinton for president in 2016 yet. His pronouncement came two days after the paper attempted to whitewash the Benghazi tragedy by printing a story that alleged that there was no al-Qaeda involvement in the attacks that killed four Americans (contradicting the paper's own reporting), murdered U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens had "little understanding" of the region, and that the terrorists were motivated by an anti-Muhammed YouTube video. On a blog post on the paper's website, Andrew Rosenthal...
  • Sarah Palin stops short of supporting Chris Christie as presidential candidate

    Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin says she thinks it's good that Gov. Chris Christie won another term in mostly Democratic New Jersey. But the 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate stops short of embracing Christie as a potential GOP presidential candidate in 2016, saying "I would never put my faith and hope in any one politician."

    Allahpundit asked an interesting exit question at the end of his post on John McCain’s possible retirement: Exit question for righties who think a McCain endorsement of Hillary over Paul would mean nothing to anyone: You sure? Actually, yeah, I’m pretty sure it won’t mean anything, but not because of McCain’s relative draw within the GOP or with independents. I just don’t think endorsements at this level have any impact on the fortunes of candidates with near-total saturation with voters already. Endorsements matter for obscure candidates, perhaps especially in local elections, but also in House and Senate races for newcomers....
